The claustrophobic atmosphere of a slightly sinister seaside village is well created. What confused me was the timeline. It isn't really very easy to tell whether you are reading about events which happened recently or in the more distant past. Many of Alison's actions seem illogical. I kept wondering why on earth she didn't just give people brief details of what happened and say it is still too painful to talk about? Anyone who has her best interests at heart would accept that.
I did read to the end but having worked out pretty well what happened the ending wasn't that much of a surprise to me. I thought the book overall was good but I was less satisfied with the way it jumps around in time and I felt Alison was not that likeable as a character and I disliked her boyfriend from the start. I think this really should be 3.5 stars rather than 4. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review.
I lost count of the amount of times someone was held by their arms,wrist, or shoulders.
Not for me.
